(PresseBox) ( Frankfurt, )
The new First Bike by JD Bug, the brand that sparked a major trend in mobility with the aluminium kick scooter, is now exposed at the CEBIT in Hannover. With a completely revised design and innovative manufacturing process, it was recently awarded the prestigious iF product design award.

The JD Bug First Bike uses a completely new frame design and a new manufacturing process that differs from traditional development and production techniques. These new design concepts were recognized and awarded the 2011 iF product design award.

Training bike with award-winning design

The First Bike is for children aged three years and older and provides a first step into the world of mobility. In a playful way, leg strength and basic sense of balance is developed. Weighing only 3.7 kg, it very light to handle for children, while offering reliable security and stability.

JD used alloy aluminium materials in an innovative process that supports this new design concept. By carefully shaping each piece, the need for multiple parts is eliminated. The frame is made from two primary pieces fashioned from spherical tubes. Both pieces are gently curved to create the frame of the bicycle. The two pieces are then joined at the head of the bike by additional reinforcements.

iF product design award

The 2011 iF award jury selected the JD Bug First Bike as one of the best products in the 2011 international competition. A total of 2,756 candidates from 43 countries competed in the event.

Criteria for this prestigious award included the evaluation of the design quality, craftsmanship, choice of materials, and the level of innovation and functionality. The First Bike was awarded the coveted product design award based on its modern manufacturing process, functionality and its simple and dynamic design.
